Five Free Courses from Stanford Start This Month

Stan­ford’s big open course ini­tia­tive keeps rolling along. On March 12, three new cours­es will get under­way:

Then, start­ing on March 19, two more will take flight:

The cours­es gen­er­al­ly fea­ture inter­ac­tive video clips; short quizzes that pro­vide instant feed­back; the abil­i­ty to pose high val­ue ques­tions to Stan­ford instruc­tors; feed­back on your over­all per­for­mance in the class; and a state­ment of accom­plish­ment at the end of the course.

And, yes, the cours­es are free and now open for enroll­ment.

As always, don’t miss our big list of 425 Free Online Cours­es. It may just be the sin­gle most awe­some page on the web.

    I’m real­ly excit­ed about this free cours­es. I am real­ly inter­est­ed in tak­ing one of them (Prob­a­bilis­tic graph­i­cal Models)for myself. I’m an inforamtics-bioin­foramtics teacher at Uni­ver­si­dad del Valle, Cali, Colom­bia, and I would like to find out if this course would be apro­pri­ate for our infor­mat­ics stu­dents. But before I enroll, I would like to know more about time require­ments and the ped­a­gog­ic strat­e­gy of the cours­es:
    are the cours­es sched­uled online on fixed days and hours? If so, when are they?, how much time for each ses­sion? How many weeks?
    Or do you send video (and oth­er mate­r­i­al) to the par­tic­i­pants?
    Are super­vised exer­ci­ces planned? How flex­i­ble is the due­time in this case?
